January Jones is setting the record straight on Nick Viall dating rumors.

The 40-year-old actress discussed her relationship with Viall in an interview Tuesday with Entertainment Tonight after being linked to the 37-year-old Bachelor Season 21 star.

"He's a friend of mine. He's super sweet," Jones said of Viall while attending the Runway to Red Carpet initiative launch in Los Angeles.

"I'm single," she clarified. "But, he's a friend of mine and tells me lots of inside scoops."

Page Six had reported in January that Jones and Viall started dating after the actress said on an episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden in November that she was a fan of Viall and The Bachelor.

"You don't know if you like him or if he's a scumbag -- and I think that's why I'm attracted to him, maybe," Jones told host James Corden.

"He asked me to battle him on Lip Sync Battle," she said. "But I declined, because I don't need to be humiliated."

Viall got engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi on The Bachelor Season 21 finale in March, but split from the contestant in August. He said in an interview with the Almost Famous podcast the next month that single life "kinda sucks."
